What To Wear to Howard's Homecoming

Untitled designWhenever I mention that I am Howard grad, the first thing people say (after asking if I've pledged lol) "I heard yall homecoming is liiiiiit!" And I mean... they ain't wrong! It's been through some changes the last few years, but it is still the place to see and be seen. If you are rolling through DC this weekend here's what to wear to Howard's Homecoming.

Day

HUHC Day

Sweater / Duster / Jeans / Hat / Earrings / Lipstick / Bag / Boots

The weather is always crazy around homecoming. So make sure you layer up for your daytime events, whether it be Yardfest (is that even still a thing?), brunch, a day party or the tailgate. Start off with comfy jeans like this distressed jeans (similar here from Topshop) and add in a simple sweater (similar here from H&M). Add in signature pieces like this floppy hat from Charlotte Russe, a fringe suede crossbody bag (similar here from Nordstrom), geometric hoop earrings from Vince Camuto and sturdy boots (similar here from ASOS). Finish off with a long and lean duster from Boohoo and a nude lip from NYX.

Dress / Earrings / Lipstick / Clutch / Heels

Now for night, it's time to step it up. This is the perfect opportunity to wear the slinky dress that's sitting in the back of your closet. This little black dress from Topshop is anything but safe as it shows off your classy and sassy side with an illusion top, fitted silhouette and a slightly longer length. Up the intrigue with lace-up snakeskin heels from Miss Selfridges and a cutout clutch to keep the geometric theme going. Keep it classy with a pair of subtle drop ear jackets and a red lip from LipBar, a lipstick line created by a Howard University grad!
